    • Be Rich in Good Works Many parishioners have received, or will soon receive, a letter from Bishop Serratelli requesting the support for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. This year, the theme of the Appeal is Be Rich in Good Works. The Bishop’s Annual Appeal supports four very worthy causes: our Catholic Charities agencies: Nazareth Village, our diocesan priests’ retirement residence; our inner-city elementary schools and seminarian education. Last year’s Appeal raised a record amount which meant that even more could be done for the people in our Diocese. You can help make this year’s Appeal an even greater success by making a generous pledge today. Whatever you can do to help will be a great blessing!
